101. Effect of Soft Tissue Techniques on Headache Impact, Disability, and Quality of Life in Migraine Sufferers: A Pilot Study. (Abstract)

improved only in the experimental group (p < 0.001).Soft tissue techniques based on MTrP therapy and stretching were helpful for improving certain aspects of migraine, such as the impact and disability caused by the headache, and the frequency and intensity of headache; however, when combined with suboccipital soft tissue inhibition, the treatment effect was larger.

102. Diagnosis and Management of Headache in Older Adults. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Diagnosis and Management of Headache in Older Adults. Headache is a common, disabling neurologic problem in all age groups, including older adults. In older adults, headache is most likely a primary disorder, such as tension-type headache or migraine; however, there is a higher risk of secondary causes, such as giant cell arteritis or intracranial lesions, than in younger adults. Thus, based on the headache history, clinical examination, and presence of headache red flags, a focused diagnostic (...) evaluation is recommended, ranging from blood tests to neuroimaging, depending on the headache characteristics. Regardless of the primary or secondary headache disorder diagnosis, treatment options may be limited in older patients and may need to be tailored to the presence of comorbid medical conditions. The purpose of this review is to provide an update on the management of headache in older adults, from diagnosis to treatment.Copyright © 2017 Mayo Foundation for Medical Education and Research

Diphenhydramine is not recommended for analgesia but may reduce akathisia associated with prochlorperazine. Ketamine, propofol, and nerve blocks demonstrate promise. Triptan agents are also efficacious, provided absence of contraindications. Most patients are appropriate for discharge with pain improvement.A variety of medications (...)

multiplied by disability weights (a measure of the relative severity of the disabling consequence of a disease). The burden stemming from medication overuse headache, which was included in earlier iterations of GBD as a separate cause, was subsumed as a sequela of either migraine or tension-type headache. Because no deaths were assigned to headaches as the underlying cause, YLDs equate to disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs). We also analysed results on the basis of the Socio-demographic Index (SDI (...) ), a compound measure of income per capita, education, and fertility.Almost three billion individuals were estimated to have a migraine or tension-type headache in 2016: 1·89 billion (95% uncertainty interval [UI] 1·71-2·10) with tension-type headache and 1·04 billion (95% UI 1·00-1·09) with migraine. However, because migraine had a much higher disability weight than tension-type headache, migraine caused 45·1 million (95% UI 29·0-62·8) and tension-type headache only 7·2 million (95% UI 4·6-10·5) YLDs

106. Nerve blocks in paediatric and adolescent headache disorders. (Abstract)

Nerve blocks in paediatric and adolescent headache disorders. Headaches in children and adolescents are common, causing debilitating symptoms in many. Treatment of headache disorders can be complex and standard lifestyle changes as well as oral medications may offer inadequate relief. The purpose of this article is to review the mechanism of action, efficacy and technique of peripheral nerve blocks (PNBs) and the role they play in treating paediatric headache disorders.Evidence for the use (...) of PNBs in youth is limited. However, available studies show evidence of benefit in both primary and secondary headache disorders. Variability exists in the type of block, medication choice, volume infused and frequency of this treatment. There are no serious side effects associated with PNBs.PNBs are well tolerated and effective as adjunctive therapy for many disabling paediatric headache disorders. The technique can be easily learned by frontline and specialty practitioners. Prospective placebo

107. Is Sphenopalatine Ganglion Block Treatment Effective on Postspinal Headaches

. The etiology of the postspinal headache remains unclear. Severeness of the symptoms and amount of the cerebrospinal fluid leakage have been found positive correlating. The cerebrospinal fluid supports brain with it's mass effect. When a leakage of the fluid occurs, support of the brain decreases and pain sensitive structures of the brain gets more sensitive. In this condition 5 th 9th and 10 th cranial nerves, falks cerebelli, tentorium and blood vessels are affected most. Decreased cerebrospinal fluid (...) cerebral and meningeal blood vessels which cause vasodilatation and stimulate nociceptor activation on meninges. Consequently headache is related with sensory cortex. Transnasal SPG block is performed successfully in chronic pain syndromes including migraine, cluster headaches and atypic face pain. Likewise the SPG block is performed in acute treatment of postspinal headache. However gold standard of the treatment is epidural blood patching which is interventional and has many risks.

The effect of manual therapy techniques on headache disability in patients with tension-type headache. Tension-type headache (TTH) is the most common type of primary headache however there is no clear evidence as to which specific treatment is most effective or whether combined treatment is more effective than individual treatments.To assess the effectiveness of manual therapy techniques, applied to the suboccipital region, on aspects of disability in a sample of patients with tension-type (...) at reducing the overall HDI score compared to the group that received suboccipital soft tissue inhibition and to the control group (both P<0.05). In addition, photophobia, phonophobia and pericranial tenderness only improved in the group receiving combined therapy (P<0.05).When given individually, suboccipital soft tissue inhibition and occiput-atlas-axis manipulation resulted in changes in different parameters related to the disability caused by TTH. However, when the two treatments were combined

, conventional synthetic disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (alone or in combination), biologics (including biosimilars), and targeted synthetic disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs appear to be effective for different outcomes. It is unclear how the efficacy and safety of the treatments compare with one another. The treatment outcomes of most importance to patients are disease remission or low disease activity, with improved fatigue and decreased pain also being of high importance. The decision (...) of the next treatment option should be based on a discussion between the clinician and patient that takes into consideration benefits and harms, patient treatment goals and tolerance for side effects, accessibility of treatment (e.g., whether travel is necessary), and affordability.
